Track Name: Circuitry
I live in a city on a circuit board
the lawns their trimmings and their manicures
stretch highway ribbons streaming back and forth
at every intersection is a matador

I live in a city on a circuit board
the laws stand against a human current
were they made to prey or to protect
or to keep the rumbling hive in check

I live in a city on a circuit board
I live in a city on a circuit board
I couldn't say if it was ever meant to work
but it never will in a city full of spectators
Track Name: Wind
it's late afternoon
the sun enters my room
her shoes still on
she must be leaving soon

when I have a moment to myself
what to do?
when I have a moment to myself
what to do?

of course I'm still a little sore
and I was hoping the worst was over
it hurts not knowing future terms
I know how you worry darling

so much for the wind
grow a denser skin
all over our love
another's smudged prints

of course I'm still a little sore
and I was hoping the worst was over
it hurts not knowing future terms
I know how you worry darling
Track Name: Olive Eyes
I've a hunger and it grows inside
to devoir those olive eyes
the more I need the less you feed me
til I'm empty
I'm empty

twist your words out tie a tightrope
one foot before the other I go
one more round remember take it slow
heel to toe, heel to toe

this machine how divine
to feel it unwind

I feel something grow inside you
I didn't plant it but it's taken root
now the seasons change within me
and I'm heel to toe in heavy snow

twist your words out tie a tightrope
one foot before the other I go
one more round remember take it slow
heel to toe, heel to toe

how divine
how divine
to feel it unwind
I'm empty
I'm loose seams
a new form takes me

how divine
how divine
to feel it unwind
I'm empty
I'm loose seams
a new form takes me
Track Name: Zwei
don't hold your breath I will inhale it
I want your darkest sins
and all the parts that make you human
to feel them on my skin

we'll meet another time
when all that's passed are cycles of light
and we'll stay out much too late
filling in their space

there's a slow burn through my insides
it clears the way for new life
rolling through are cycles of light
I feel it once, I feel twice
